BIG’s CopenHill waste-to-energy plant-cum-ski slope opens in Copenhagen
The Amager Bakke waste to energy plant-cum-ski slope, newly renamed CopenHill, opened in December 2019. A municipal waste incinerator that operates at 1,000 degrees C is wrapped in a thermal blanket and topped with a ski slope in a country whose highest elevation is 171m. According to BIG founder Bjarke Ingels, this is precisely the point. Avid skiers and snowboarders will no longer have to make the six-hour trek to Sweden or fly to the Alps. Now they can ski in central Copenhagen.
